WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?

Meet my new "BFF."

My life just got so much simpler.

You exceeded any expectations I ever had.

We will accomplish so many things together. I just know it.

I have plans in store for me and you!

I love you.

Yes, I'm referring to the crock pot, and not the beef stew, although, the stew was yummy! My in-laws got me this for Christmas, and this was the first time for me to use one, EVER! Now I need recipes, and I'm so glad that I found hundreds of them online already! Do you have any favorites that you would like to share?

Now, that's what I'm talkin' bout!

ALICIA!!!! First Crockpot!! We've been best buds for years, in fact I have 3, various sizes! I do mainly soups and chili, pot roast, french dip sandwiches.....I'd probably try coffee if I had a recipe for it, LOL!

I hope you have a library by you because it'll be FILLED with crockpot books!! I've got one now and she's got a website you'll love: www.crockpot365.blogspot.com LOTS of great recipes! Have fun - it's so nice to put something in early in the day and then take it out and poof, dinner! ♥

Kelli @ RTSM said...

That stew looks so yummy! I'm not a big crock pot user...mainly because I am too lazy to clean it up after the fact. I think I need one of those newer ones that come apart and can go in the dishwasher:)

Mommy, I'm Home said...

Checkout the Crockpot lady's site at crockpot365.blogspot.com/

I'm not a huge Crockpot fan, but she's got some decent recipes.

Parsley said...

Don't you know you shouldn't post a pic of yummy looking food without a recipe?! Please post it (wimper wimper). ;)

Robyn said...

Yummy Yummy that looks so good. Crock pots are the best, especially when you have a busy day and dinner will be done when you get home!

Darcie said...

I am sure just about every woman's heart beats faster when she sees a crock-pot. Enjoy it...and all your spare time that it will give you.

Mama Zen said...

That looks heavenly!

Crock pots rule!

Diana said...

Crock pots are awesome. Especially in the summer months when you don't want to heat up the kitchen!!

I'm just the MOM said...

I LOVE LOVE my crock pot! Though my hubs has been using it more than I have the past couple weeks. And PLEASE share that recipe you had in there!

Mommy24cs said...

I adore my crockpot! I use it at least twice a week and sometimes for the entire week. It's very handy in the spring and summer when we are constantly on the go with sports.

Here's a recipe I use quite often

6 frozen boneless skinless chicken breast halves

2- 10 3/4 cans cream of chicken soup

1/2 c sliced mushrooms

3/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

Place frozen chicken in crockpot
Mix together soup, mushrooms, salt and pepper. Pour over chicken.
Cover and cook on low 10-12 hours.

Serve over rice or mashed potatoes.

I love that you don't have to thaw out the chicken!

Happy said...

I love to cook in a crock pot.

How about some Fiesta Chicken? Frozen chicken breasts from a bag. Dump in crock pot. Pour jar of salsa (get creative with what kind) over chicken. Cook on low all day. Serve over rice. Top with Colby Jack cheese.

And, I have a stuffed pepper soup recipe for the crock pot, but I don't know it off the top of my head...will get back to you on that.

Michelle said...

I have never been able to get into cooking in a crockpot! I have one from when I got married and it collects dust more than recipes. :)

Sawatzky family said...

Is there a busy wife and mom out there who is not in love with her crockpot??? lol
Great post!

Mostlygrocery said...

That looks stuffed with all kinds of goodies, get some bread and its perfect.

jen@odbt said...

It looks delish. I don't have much luck with crockpots for whatever reason. They're super convenient though.

Kimberly said...

LOL! Now my friend, please let me introduce you to the crockpot liner. The most wonderful invention EVER. We're talking ten second cleanup. Love!

mother goose said...

I used my crock pot yesterday and made the same thing! It was so nice and easy. I need to cook with mine more often too!

Together We Save said...

Yummy!! I cooked a roast, potatoes, & carrots the other night for some reason the roast did not turn out very well.

angie said...

I LOVE my crockpot, too. I use it all the time. Have you been to the year of crockpotting blog?

Tara said...

I like using a crock pot but don't a whole lot. Maybe, like you, I just don't have enough recipes.

Mc Allen said...

Debbie said...

I love my crockpot Alicia! Mine isn't quite as fancy as yours but it still works. It makes life easy if you remember to put in the ingredients early in the morning. I love the wonderful aroma of the food when you walk into the house.

blessings and good eating,
Debbie

Momisodes said...

Oh I could definitely use a bowl of that right now, thank you :)

I really need to be better about using my crock pot. It really is a lifesaver some nights!
